Leading the zombie charge will be second year theatre and performance Glyndwr University student Brett Jones, 21 from Wrexham.
Brett runs Psychotel in Chester, with friend and business partner Ollie Cook, 23.
The terrifying hotel, where people pay for the privilege of being scared witless, is based in Ye Olde King’s Head. The inn has featured on TV hit series Most Haunted.
As well as the zombie invasion, the Student Takeover will feature a host of exclusive offers of up to 20 per cent for bargain-hunting undergrads when they show a valid student card at the till point of participating stores.
These include H&M, River Island, Topshop, Topman, Dorothy Perkins, Burton and Bank where there will be a DJ entertaining the crowds.
Brett, who is also a skilled magician, said: “It’s a lot of fun scaring people – I never get bored of it. People will scream their heads off. I’ve seen the biggest, toughest, muscular guys run away screaming and shouting.

Writing Workshops: Autum 2014 – Spring 2015
“One must still have creativity in oneself to be able to give birth to a dancing star”
- Friedrich Nietzsche
We hurtle towards winter. The evenings draw in. Now is the perfect time to hone our creative skills, to dust off those writings lounging in the top draw, or begin a new creative adventure.
Diving into six divergent writing genres over the course of as many months, participants will examine, and write on, a broad and wide-ranging variety of themes. Writing experience isn’t necessary – just bring an open, inquisitive mind and a sense of adventure. These sessions are perfect for engaging with your creativity, either as a seasoned writer, a curious beginner, or for people working in other artforms interested in trying something new.
THIS GIG is a volunteer lead initiative ran by teenagers Kieran Brough, Hari McDermott and Luciano Morris. The idea is supported by THIS Project a creative company that runs two pop-up galleries, Undegun and Galeri 3B in the centre of town.
As volunteers for THIS Project, all under the age of 18, they help with day to day duties around the galleries, which include helping with music events, setting up exhibitions and invigilating. Due to the relationship they have built with THIS Project over the last 12 months, they have been given the opportunity to run their own music event.
The idea behind THIS GIG is to bring people musical entertainment and incorporate everyone in the community to get more people involved! Our aims are to get bands from all around the country to travel to Wrexham and create a new music scene that appeals to people under the age of 25. We believe that the music scene has changed a lot and we want to regain the fun and vibrant atmosphere of Wrexham’s past.
The bands we have playing are very well known and are great guys, Doppelganger and Neck Deep’s own Ben Barlow are both from the Wrexham area. We then have special guests from Bristol, Highlives.
